Paper Puppets and Found Object Animation

Spend two Sunday afternoons in August learning to animate! We will use Dragon Frame stop motion software to bring 2D and 3D objects to life under camera. Found objects, paper puppets, craft materials, plas-ticine and possibly the contents of your wallet all make good subjects for stop motion animation. Participants will also learn to build and animate paper cutouts puppets with simple armatures. We will explore animation movement, timing and anticipation through a series of fun exercises.

Please bring a pair of scissors and glue stick. The Introduction to Independent Filmmaking and Camera Theory workshops are strongly recommended as a prerequisite.
